Cogmind VAT-free in the EU
« on: November 15, 2016, 04:42:31 AM »

I know VAT is a tough burden for online purchases in the EU at around +20% tax, and it holds back some potential supporters who are on the fence (argh if only Cogmind came out before 2015 :P), so for at least a week here I'm going to see if covering VAT on my end will help some extra people join alpha!

As you can see, so far about one-fifth of Cogmind supporters are from the EU:

(The numbers make sense since the game is English only.)

:) The Buy Page :)

Edit: Note that while I called this "VAT-free," that's because normally the tax is charged on top of the base price. Technically EU buyers will still be charged VAT on a purchase--that's unavoidable, but what I'm basically doing here is lowering the price of Cogmind in the EU, taking less myself as a result, to cover the heavy tax instead of passing it along to buyers! Hopefully that clears up any confusion.


Lots of new progress at this point, but rather than put out another update I'll just save it for the upcoming Alpha 12 preview, which is easily going to be the largest collection of alpha feature images ever...
